What Vegans Eat – Day 1420

Breakfast: Last night I slept at my mom’s house. I was up really late catching up on my work. I had to wait for her to go to sleep before I could start working. She was very chatty to day. It reminded me of when I was in high school. I would wait until everyone…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1416

Breakfast: I call this Luxury Hotel Oats. When I pour Coconut Milk on my Rolled Oats I feel like I am dining at a fine hotel restaurant while on vacation. This bowl had Blueberries, Strawberries, Apples and Flax Seeds (on the bottom). I don’t think the hotel would serve Flax Seeds, so I know I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1415

Breakfast: I made some coconut milk this morning. That means I take a 7-ounce box of Edward & Sons, Let’s Do Organic, Organic Creamed Coconut, Unsweetened and blend it with water.

Onion Rings (oil-free & gluten-free)

Who doesn’t love onion rings? It’s unusual to find vegan onion rings so I don’t have them very often. But when I do, I can only eat one or two because I am not used to eating fried foods, and they taste oily, and don’t feel so good afterwards in my gut. Problem solved! These…
